Race in America: When Did We Become a ‘White Nation?’

This new book on race in America begins with the moment when “white people” as a separate and distinct group of humanity were invented through legislation and the enforcement of laws. It explains how the creation of this distinction divided laborers, and ultimately served the interests of the elite. It also examines how foundational law and policy were used to institutionalize the practice of white people holding positions of power.
